Only one shopping week left ’til Xmas! It’s the 17th, and today we get a dude with a fire extinguisher, some gifts, more flags, and an escape pod.
So I guess yesterday’s cooking isn’t going so well, time for grandpa to grab the fire extinguisher?
I love this fisherman sweater print torso. It’s not new, but it’s pretty great. Here’s the back:
In Friends, we get some gifts for the tree that could also be hung on a tree.
If you open them up you’ll find a microphone and a pink tiara.
Another day, another set of flags… Looks like I was wrong about them showing two houses on each pole, and these are Hufflepuff’s colors, apparently. According to J.K. Rowling:
The four Hogwarts houses have a loose association with the four elements, and their colours were chosen accordingly. Gryffindor (red and gold) is connected to fire; Slytherin (green and silver) to water; Hufflepuff (yellow and black, representing wheat and soil) to earth; and Ravenclaw (blue and bronze; sky and eagle feathers) to air.
So now the ones from earlier days make more sense – each house is represented by a pole with two flags showing that house’s two colors. On day 5 we got red and gold for Gryffindor, day 9 was green and silver for Slytherin, and on day 13 we got blue and silver (I guess Ravenclaw’s bronze got an upgrade).
As a reminder, here are the ones from the earlier days:
And finally, Star Wars brings us something I can get behind – the escape pod from the opening scene of the original movie (Episode IV).
